ToyGiles ran a hand through his hair. "I trust you can explain this."

Andrew had taken a group of junior Slayers on a field exercise and they'd stumbled onto the opening of a portal.

A fight had ensued and the demons were vanquished, but an overenthusiastic kick had broken the ceremonial talisman. Andrew had grabbed the nearest object and intoned a spell to reseat its power.

Unfortunately, the fight had taken place in a toy store and the Amulet of Dhulin was now a Rubik's Cube. Andrew thought Giles would be more appreciative that it had almost been a Slinky.

Fear the most ancient and powerful Amulet... er, Slinky... of Dhulin! *cracks up*

On the plus side, there's a good chance of it being overlooked by evil-doers.

One wonders why more people haven't used that strategy...

Heh. That is truly beautiful.

The muse does tend to run off on tangents, but the trip is usually entertaining.

I always want to just grab your Andrew and give him the Stooges hair ruffling headlock. Which, of course, means that you've written him perfectly. *g*

I thought it was just me that wanted to that to him. Andrew may want to seek shelter if we mount a joint offensive.

Definitely. He actually become my favourite character in the last season of Buffy. His little documentary, for example...

I think that's a bonus. Ancient occult powers and a super nerd toy. :D I bet Andrew can solve it in less than 2 minutes.

And not by pulling it apart either.

I'm just picturing the demons trying to instill a nerd toy with the proper gravitas for a hell dimension opening ceremony and failing. Perhaps Andrew is onto something.

Nobody will ever unleash THAT power again.

Having your mystical symbol turned into a child's toy, does tend to put a bit of a dampener on things.

Never underestimate the power of a child's toy; look at how many boys have been fascinated by their sisters' Barbie doll.
26th Oct, 2005 09:54 (UTC)
I guess that depends on the type of fascination involved.

Barbies are detachable and easy to pierce.

Ah ... detachabe and easy to pierce. I must have had a very bland imagination as a boy, because I never considered that.
My sister's Barbie did run off with my Johnny West action figure, but they never did anything like having a three-way with GI Joe.
